Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

So, in looking up the Everly Brothers, I discovered (or had forgotten) Phil died last January. They both were heavy smokers and drug users. (And it's Ronstadt--I think!)

Roads coated with ice this morning. Think I'll stay home. Welcome December.

I love looking up people from my childhood--"googling", that is. When I looked up Linda Rondstat (sp?) the other day, I was surprised at how old she looked! Next on my list, the Everly Bros. All I want to do is dream....!

Oh! I missed the pj party! Monday morning here, mist and rain (come and get it!) and I'm off to the dentist. Waving to you!

Felaine, a beautiful photograph.  You must have loved skating in such wonderful costumes.

NOT exactly Sally Rand, but we did use big white ostrich feather fans in this number:

I love these old clips from the "What's My Line" game show.

Sally Rand spent several years working in Chicago in the late 1920's and early 1930's.  She is a legend around here and is often a topic of conversation when discussing the 1933 Chicago World's Fair.  As the Wikipedia article mentions, she was quite the scandalous attraction.  Hubba-hubba!

Aaaarrrrghghghg!  We had a VERY light rain all day today, and our land-line is giving us nothing but static again.  WTF is the matter with the phone company?  I pay $4 a month for line repair, and get Jack Schidt.

What a weekend this has been.....

*****************************************

Actually, she was 4 years older than RAH, but they WERE friends.

Is that Sally Rand?  She was a classmate of Robert A. Heinlein in Kansas City....
